comment When would I use 飛行場【ひこうじょう】over 空港【くうこう】 for airport?
In English it might be the same as the distinction between an airport and an airfield.

comment What is the 「ひ」 in 「ひづめ」(蹄)?
@TokyoNagoya Is the entire second paragraph not enough? Or are you insinuating that we're too dull to understand that this is conjecture?

This question appears to be off-topic because it is about learning methodology.

comment Why is カラオケ (karaoke) written in katakana?
@snailplane This is true! I meant that comment more as an appendix on サボる specifically and not as a refutation of the point that slang words can be mixed.

comment Why is カラオケ (karaoke) written in katakana?
サボる is an interesting example of a phenomenon kind of related to this. While I don't think it's really wrong, I don't think it's entirely accurate to say the mix is necessarily related to its slanginess. サボる comes from the word サボタージュ, or sabotage, which is French (though it may have entered Japanese through English). So what we're seeing is the 動詞化, or verbification, if you will, of loan words, similar to ググる (to google) or パニクる (to panic), both of which take the hiragana ending for the purposes of inflection.

comment How To Learn Japanese Vocabulary?
I feel like the answer is in the question.. how do you go about learning vocabulary with the kanji you have? You go and learn vocabulary with the kanji you have! Just find words and learn them. RTK is to help you remember the kanji themselves, not the words.
